AUTUMN TERM 2017

On Tuesday 7th of November, Year Three visited the Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Leicester where we were shown around the Temple, learning about Sikh beliefs and religious rituals. We were lucky enough to experience a call to prayer in which Sikhs gather in a big room in front of a golden throne, decorated with jewels. This was really spectacular!

As well as this, we were able to share our knowledge of the 5 Ks. Below, the picture shows us displaying the 5 Ks on our person. These are Kesh (uncut hair), Kara (a steel bracelet), Kanga (a wooden comb), Kacchera (cotton underwear) and Kirpan (a steel sword).

The children learned about the ten Gurus and how they have contributed to Sikhism over time. They also learned about Langar (a free meal for all Sikhs who attend the Temple for prayer). The children represented the school superbly, listening very carefully. They were confident and keen to ask lots of questions to further their understanding of Sikhism. We were very proud of their behaviour, well done! 

Below are some comments that the children made on their return from the Gurdwara:

“It was a nice trip because we got to learn about Sikhism.” – Mia 

“I really enjoyed our trip to the Gurdwara.” – Oliver

 “We learnt lots about the Gurdwara on our visit.” – Kaden

“We were able to show what we had learned about the 5 Ks.” – Karolina
